    My fiance, now husband, and I stayed at the Drifters Reef Motel in April when we were in town for our engagement pictures. We brought our puppy with us so a place that will accept pets was important. We checked in early without any problems...More

    We had never stayed here before, so we weren't sure of what to expect (just like staying anywhere new for the first time) but I was pleasantly suprised. We came last minute, and they had one room available, due to someone else checking out early....More

    We have stayed at the Drifter's Reef a few times now and have had a great experience every time- it is definitely the best place to stay on the beach! It is the perfect location, very close to restaurants and only a few blocks away...More

    The front desk clerk - Amy, was fantastic. The room was dated, but very clean. The mattress was horrible. Weekends, the restaurant next door, LOUD band on the weekends. Sent 2 emails to the motel addressing the mattress, but they are not answering my complaint.
